Recently, there has been an opinion that today’s Internet model is quickly becoming obsolete, and many users are still looking for more than its functionality. Increasingly, the phrase appears in everyday life – the web 3.0 Internet model, which will be much more convenient, faster, more functional, and safer. Below we will try to understand all the Internet models and how they differ.
Web 1.0 is the static model of the Internet, which appeared in the early 1990s. This type of model allowed only to read or watch pages without the ability to exchange messages with each other. There was only access to the content, but it was impossible to comment or leave feedback – there were no pages for this. Also, the presence of advertisements on the pages of sites was prohibited.
Web 1.0 couldn’t filter what you wanted, making finding the information you needed challenging. The sites did not have a window for registering users, and there were no accounts that would allow users to communicate with each other and express their opinion on a particular issue.
All information was stored on the server as files and was shown only in the form in which it was uploaded to the platform. For the site creator to add a new page, it was necessary to revise everything available to add a new link to create a new page with content.
The sites were not adapted for the correct demonstration of their information – the resolution was the same for everyone, so all users had different viewing quality.
In addition, not all platforms could be supported by existing browsers, which presented difficulties for site developers who had to adapt to browsers that could render the hosted resource more adaptively.
The design of the pages was far from what we can see now. The plan had practically no variety – color schemes were used, and modest animation was occasionally used.
Only by the end of 2004 were sites with the possibility of registering and leaving comments more common.
A characteristic feature of Web 1.0 was decentralization – the structure was built on modems and telephone networks that connected thousands of autonomous computers into one system.
This type of model lasted until the beginning of 2005.
The conventional date for beginning a more explicit manifestation of the Web 2.0 model is 2005. This model allowed users to interact with the Internet — in particular, to participate in forming content, leaving comments, and creating accounts. Now it is possible not only to read but also to leave notes and exchange information.
Platforms like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and others were created based on HTML5 and CSS3 technologies, and the HTTP protocol was used to search for the necessary information. Many interactive websites and applications have also appeared.
It became possible to diversify the design of pages and various types of adjustments – adding text, photos, audio recordings, and videos. Sections of sites began to be highlighted in different fonts, and the structure of texts and sites appeared: a heading and subheadings, which, in turn, can also be divided into paragraphs.
In addition, platforms can now adapt to browsers, and many sites have convenient applications.
Websites became more challenging, so developers who specialized in creating platforms in JSON and XML formats arose.
Platforms began to compete to attract more users, affecting the site owner’s income. And with the help of advertising, they earn millions.
Each site has its rules and conditions, and moderators closely monitor compliance with them.
Almost every site now has a rating of its kind, which rises or falls due to likes, the number of views, and registered users.
All data that one user transmits to another is stored on a single server – a centralized technology model they want to eliminate by applying the Web3-0 model in the future. All users’ data belongs to one owner of a particular platform, who, at their discretion, can dispose of this information. And if the site owners do not like the content of one of the users, then they have the right to block it or delete it altogether.
The service owner receives all the profit, while the users do not receive anything for the content they post on this platform. Many users depend on large media whose rules must be constantly adjusted. And given that all the information belongs to one owner, security and confidentiality are questioned. These moments are the reasons for the creation of a decentralized model of the Internet Web 3.0.
What is a web 3.0? It is a model that will fully understand user requests, considering all the nuances of search. All content will be adapted as much as possible, and the request method will not matter – text, voice, picture, etc. Thus, this model is considered the latest stage in the evolution of the Internet and began to be called semantic.
All websites and applications will be able to process data using the following technologies:
- machine learning ML;
- a large amount of data;
- decentralized registry system (blockchain) DLT and many other technologies that make it much more efficient to find the necessary information for the user according to the specified search parameters.
The decentralized Internet model will be a breakthrough compared to what we have now – the concentration of all data on one node, which is inconvenient and needs to be more credible.
The Web 3.0 model will be able to understand information at the level of artificial intelligence.
Blockchain and Cryptocurrency
The Web 3.0 model will function through decentralized protocols, like blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. It will improve interoperability functionality – that is, the third-generation Internet system will be easily integrated using smart contracts, providing transactions, data storage, and anonymity. Today, protocols like De-Fi are already functioning, and this is just the beginning of a new stage in the development of this model.
Today, Web 3.0 is a reconstruction of Web 2.0 using the latest technologies:
- artificial intelligence – maximum understanding of the human query machine, which will reduce the search time and eliminate the use of refinements with the help of additional words or phrases;
- blockchain – information is stored not on one node but on several at the same time;
- ensuring confidentiality through encryption;
- a mega-net with open protocols that will belong only to the developer and user without the participation of intermediaries.
The core principle of Web 3.0 is to allow the creators to own the content they have posted on the platform. The system should be designed so the content creator can make a profit instead of the platform owner hosting this content. That is, each user who created the content will be able to own this part of the Internet and act with it at the owner’s discretion. Receive tokens for using your content and then exchange them for fiat funds, making spending in real life possible.
So far, this model has yet to become widespread but is at an early stage of development, although platforms and sites in this format have already begun to appear.
One example is a decentralized platform – planetex.io. Although it is still in development, this project is up-and-coming. It will combine NFT collection, P2E game, decentralized exchange, complex meta-universe, and more. In the near future, Planetex will become one of the largest decentralized ecosystems, showing users all the benefits of Web 3.0.
In the end
The new, advanced Web 3.0 model of the Internet opens up great opportunities to monetize your content, keep transactions anonymous, and improve search efficiency. And also, censorship rules are excluded, and storing your data on several servers is possible.
